Midsomer Quilting is Moving
Sorry if we’ve been a bit preoccupied of late but we are moving. Several months ago we discovered that our landlord was putting his garden centre on the market and that that might mean some rethinking on our part, but that we had no intention of quitting. Well, when it came to, we had little option but to find alternative accommodation. And we have.   

We’re planning to close our shop at the Garden Centre at 4pm on Monday, September 25th, and then reopen at the new one three days later, on Friday, September 29th, at our usual time of 10am.

It’s less than two miles from the Garden Centre, in a small business park, close to Chilcompton Parish Church. It’s the entire ground floor of the building (above), that was previously occupied by Occam, an internet marketing business (that has now moved up to the first floor).

There will be bags of space; reserved parking; a properly fitted kitchen an enclosed and glazed classroom, controlled heating and lighting and full disabled facilities and more.

Midsomer Quilting will actually become Midsomer Norton’s closest easterly neighbour. Our new address will be: “The Hayloft” Manor Farm, Chilcompton, BA3 4HP. To give you a rough idea of the bearings, if you were to drive from our current position at the Garden Centre for about a mile, into the centre of Chilcompton - on the left below - and turn right at the Co-op shop, then follow that same road until it leaves Chilcompton, turning sharp left down Coach Lane, in the direction of Manor Farm, the next building that comes into view will be MQ. Overall it’s about two miles. Incidentally, Church Lane also leads to the same area but we are asked to avoid that route for reasons of consideration and safety.

Apart from the location change, everything else will go on more or less as normal: the long arm service; Monday and Friday drop-in sessions; exhibitions; the programme of classes; the 12x12 Challenge; charity events; room hire and so on. We will still have an excellent team of teachers and run a full programme of classes which are listed elsewhere on this website. In addition, we have groups who use the workshop facility on Mondays and Fridays. Beginners are welcomed at any time and are encouraged to call the shop for details of classes - 01761 239333.

We still marvel at the distance that people travel to visit us at Midsomer Quilting and welcome visitors from abroad virtually every day that we are open. The chart below shows the number of unique visitors to this website since we began
